“An old lady at the Indian restaurant said, ‘Aren’t you polite!’ It was my complimentary nan”

“Complementary naan” (free bread given out at an Indian restaurant) shouldn’t be confused with “complimentary nan,” but there are jokes. This was posted on Twitter by Ira Nayman on October 8, 2019:
     
“RT @thisismenic70: Went to a Indian restaurant last night.. After I had ordered.. A little old lady came out and said.. Aren’t you polite.. You have such lovely manners..
Apparently.. It was my complimentary nan…”

Wikipedia: Naan
Naan (Persian: نان‎, romanized: nān, Hindi: नान, romanized: nān) is a leavened, oven-baked flatbread[1] found in the cuisines mainly of Western Asia, India, Indonesia, Myanmar and the Caribbean.
